Through my eyes: Santa Monica

In my point of view Santa Monica can be described in three words: the beach, the pier and the stores, they really are Santa Monica’s three main attractions. Santa Monica is everything Los Angeles isn’t: relaxed and refreshed, and full of boutique restaurants and hidden gems that offer a certain shelter from the chaos of…
